Lady Gaga has been forced to cancel her 'Born This Way Ball' world tour after learning that she needs to have surgery for a hip surgery.

The 'Poker Face singer announced on Wednesday that she would be cancelling some of the upcoming dates of the North American leg of her two-year world tour after suffering from “chronic pain,” but it has now emerged that Gaga has teared the labrum in her right hip which will require surgery and a lengthy recovery period, according to Sky News.

Gaga, 26, still had 21 dates to complete until March 20 but these have now been cancelled to allow the singer to undergo the surgery.

In a series of messages on her Twitter page, Gaga revealed she had a joint inflammation called synovitis, while explaining that she had been unable to walk but hid the pain for a while to avoid cancelling the tour.

“There's an unfortunate announcement coming out right now, concerning myself and the Born This Ball. Im so sorry. I barely know what to say,” Gaga tweeted yesterday in a series of messages.

“I've been hiding a show injury and chronic pain for sometime now, over the past month it has worsened. I've been praying it would heal.”

“I hid it from my staff, I didn't want to disappoint my amazing fans. However after last nights performance I could not walk and still can't.(sic)”

Gaga's tour has grossed an estimated £104 million making it the fifth highest-grossing tour of all time. Fans who have already bought tickets for the cancelled shows will receive a full refund.

A rep for Lady Gaga told EntertainmentWise that there is no further comment at this time.
